  1. A new post, yay! I can't wait to try it. Thanks!

  2. this looks really good! and sorry i don't know you but i have to correct you because quinoa is actually a complete protein in and of itself-- so this dish is good to go all on its own! can't wait to try it. the flavors sound delicious together.
